Easy, Tasty Fried Spinach with Ikan Bilis Recipe on 7Apr2017

fried spinach with ikan bilis

lately I have been frying my vegetables mostly with chopped garlic (蒜蓉炒), cut chilli padi & a bit of oyster sauce. 🙂

I used to do more of the cornflour, also with oyster sauce, but lately I find that vegetables have a lot of liquids, and if you fry them without adding water, they are dryer & more flavourful, or more wok hae.

of course there is a school that says you have to add a little water at the end on high fire so that the evaporation/vapour brings out the wok hae. maybe so.

currently I am just happy with my 干炒 method la!

recently I had a nice 3pax lunch with sis & bil at ye shanghai on 7.4.2017. ^^

it was a small plate maybe cost S$1.50, quite enough as we had 7 small plate vegetable dishes. a very simple dish, and so very tasty.

so I decided to cook the same fried soinach with ikan bilis the same day sis stayed for dinner on 7.4.2017.

I fried ikan bilis, cut chilli padi in 2 tbsp oil, then added the spinach stems & chopped garlic, frying under high heat. then added the spinach leaves. added 1/2 tbsp oyster sauce & keeping it on high heat.

this spinach was excellent, with the ikan bilis texture & flavours, very tasty & sweet.

so easy to do, and sis thought it was better than ye shanghai…I thought so too! haha! ^^
